Customer Questions & Answers

does it come with a spigit?

Asked by: McWeth
It comes with a short hose and an on-off valve which you could put on the barrel or the end of the hose.

Does the "Diverter Kit" work? Looks like a lot of water will still go through the middle hole of the Diverter.

The instructions don't mention how the water normally flows through the downspout.
Asked by: JE66213
I was a bit apprehensive, but it works well. I was surprised how much rain collects in the barrel.

Is the area where you connect the hose brass or plastic?

Asked by: Sheri
It is plastic, and after six months, the connection is leaking. Tightening doesn't work, and I think the problem is in the end of the small hose that comes with the unit. It is some kind of yellow metal, I don't think it is brass. I think it is cracked, but I can't find out until the barrel is empty. Unfortunately I am losing precious Southern California rainwater.

Is the top of the rain barrel removeable for access to interior? Can we view the manual?

Asked by: Timothy
The top is not able to be removed, there is no access to the interior other then the hole you make for the diverter tube and the threaded drain at the base. I was hoping the top would be able to be taken off to be cleaned or in case of debris but have not had an issue yet

50 Gal. Sandstone Water Urn Flat-Back Rain Barrel with Integrated Planter and Diverter Kit is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 235.

The first shipment was lost so Home Depot shipped the items again, unfortunately, one of the two barrels was damaged and did not include installation instructions. I honestly think it was previously returned, was recycled and I was the unlucky recipient. The product is not at all what I expected. I needed to purchase additional downspouts and elbows and you need to drill through the resin so it's not as "easy to install" as the product overview makes it sound. Believe me I have had rain barrels in the past! I gave it a 2 rating only because it looks pretty (if it's not damaged that is - I painted the damaged one) If they carried rain barrels in the brick and mortar store, I would have taken them back!

As far as 50 gallon Terra Cotta urns goes this terra cotta urn is way out in front. It surpasses any other terra cotta looking pot in its field. All other terra cotta pots should just give up.

I also like that it included a diverter kit. However, it is intended to be a sealed container, and I use a submersible pump when I need to withdraw water for my flower and veggie beds. I also like to daisy-chain barrels at the bottom, so that they all fill to the same level, as opposed to filling one and then having the "overflow" fed into a second barrel. With a drill and short pieces of hose, I've made this work the way I want. And I cut a circular hole in the top of one to drop in by submersible pump. As for the integrated planter -- I nice idea, but I don't intend to use it.

It took a while to get rain here in southern California, but now that it is full it works well. However, with our last heavy rains the hose attachment at the bottom is leaking. We have tightened it, but it still leaks quite a bit. Unfortunately, until the barrel is empty we can't replace it. I can't find the receipt, so I guess the hose assembly can't be replaced by the company. I am disappointed about that and also losing our precious rain water. Additionally, as some people have pointed out, the flat back side does bow out when full. That isn't a critical concern for us however because it sits on a patio and not against a wall. Just hope it doesn't burst.
